Far From Heroes Biography

Last updated: 01/18/2005 10:36:08 PM

This Sudbury Ontario based, five-piece rock band are working hard to bring something new to the "pop/punk" craze. Although most of their influences are those of punk rock nature, Far From Heroes bring a new element of rock to the table. Take one listen - either recorded or playing live - and the infectious melodies will haunt you for weeks.

The talent doesn't end at writing songs. These five handsome, stylishly dressed young men will put on a live show to be remembered. Watch as they drift off into "the land of heroes" and perform for the crowd with all of their hearts. While watching them play, you can almost feel as if you are a part of the group.

Their single, entitled Start The Circus is an upbeat, energetic joy ride featured on the upcoming Sony release Beyblade Soundtrack Volume 1. Ultimately, this single is a must when partying with friends. Hell, pop it in when hanging out with your parents. There is just something about these guys that the kids, the teens, and even parents will love.

Lee remarks, "When we write songs, we don't try to make them radio friendly, or easy to listen to, or anything like that. We just always do what we think sounds best, and if it turns out 'mainstream' or 'radio friendly,' then so be it".

Founding members Lee and Scott began playing, writing - and above all dreaming - at the young ages of 13 and 14. Six years later, after a few name and member changes, Far From Heroes have obtained what they like to call the "all-star" lineup. They all feel as though each member of the band is as crucial as the next. Far From Heroes are Lee, Scott, Jer, Theo, and Jay - if it were any other way, than it wouldn't be Far From Heroes.
